Sale Price: $770.00
Listed Price $1,100.00


A unique set of 12 Terrapin forks ( Turtle Soup) Turtle soup was served with a small amount of Turtle broth and cut up pieces of meat. So you would spear a piece of meat and have a very small amount of broth. The tines are very sharp as the Turtle meat was very firm. Marked on the back with the Gorham hallmark and sterling. Circa 1900, 8 bowls are slightly gilded and 4 are not, 5 3/8" long. They are a heavy 12.5 troy ounces, 8 have a monogram on back and 4 have no mono. Very good condition.
